Along with claiming that the iPhone mini screen size is no more, Kuo detailed some spectacular digicam specs for the 2022 iPhones.
He experiences that the usual rear cameras on the iPhone 14 Professional and iPhone 14 Professional Max will probably be upgraded to 48-megapixels, a rise from the 12-megapixel sensor in iPhone 12.
As a reminder, Kuo expects 4 fashions of iPhone 14 in 2022: two 6.1-inch telephones and two 6.7-inch telephones. Like right now, Apple would designate a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch mannequin as a high-end ‘Professional’ choice.
Kuo appears assured that the 48-megapixel spec is barely destined for the dearer Professional fashions. It’s not clear if the lower-end non-Professional 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch fashions would additionally see a leap in megapixels (lower than 48MP) or if the digicam high quality would enhance in different methods. Kuo doesn’t additionally focus on particulars of the 2x zoom or extremely–vast lenses, suggesting the 48 megapixel improve is unique to the principle vast digicam.
Though the sensor is 48 megapixels, it’s doable that output photographs from the iPhone will nonetheless be 12-megapixels in decision. Apple might choose to make use of a wise scaling algorithm that takes the uncooked 48-megapixel knowledge and creates a 12-megapixel output picture, with extra element and fewer noise. That is known as ‘4 cell merge output mode’ and used right now by some high-end Android telephones.
Furthermore, the uncooked measurement of every pixel will improve to about 2.5um, considerably bigger than the 1.7um pixels in iPhone 12. Larger pixels means the telephone can soak up extra mild, lowering noise. (The iPhone 13 later this yr is anticipated to take care of 12 megapixel decision however improve pixel measurement to 2um.)
Kuo believes the video digicam system will even be upgraded for the iPhone 14, supporting 8K recording for the primary time. 8K can be out there on all 4 fashions of iPhone 14.
